>> alisyn: good morning, everyone. today is august 3rd. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us bright and early. we begin with a fox news alert for you because the state department issues a worldwide travel alert and shuts down embassies across the middle east after a terror threat. we have all of the latest for you from washington. >> and so much for civility and colored blindness. charlie rangel goes on a racist rant calling the tea party a white cracker. should the liberals condemn these comments? >> a scary wakeup call, why not sleeping through the night signal something more serious about your health. this is "fox & friends" and it begins right
3:01am
>> alisyn: good morning, everybody. thanks to much for joining us. peter johnson jr. in for clayton this morning. >> peter: good morning. >> alisyn: great to have you back, tucker. we is missed you. >> tucker: thank you. >> alisyn: a fox news alert we start with because there are some new details emerging on the al qaeda terror threat. shutting down 21 u.s. embassies tomorrow. and it has led at the a worldwide travel alert for americans. elizabeth prann is live in washington with the very latest for us. hi, elizabeth. >> good morning. senior intelligence officials say they have gathered enough evidence to suggest that terrorists affiliateds continue to plan terrorist attacks in the middle east and north africa and across the country. not only closing embassies but issuing a worldwide travel alert that warns measures to take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings.
3:02am
the scope is something we have never seen before. 21 embassies and consulates in more than a dozen different countries will be shut down. >> this is a world that is a very complex world, and we are going to make sure that we protect our embassies. that's critical at this moment, whether and to send a message that the united states is not going to be under attack. we are protecting our folks. >> house intelligence chairman mike rogers releasing ago statement and in part it reads, the seriousness of the threat stream is a sober reminder of all of al qaeda's determination and ongoing intention to commit acts of violence on western and u.s. targets. media reports state the u.s. did gather electronic communication this week among senior operatives of al qaeda. as the violence continues, in fact, overnight there was explosion from suspected suicide bomber near the indian consulate in afghan city. britain and germany will follow suit this weekend. those countries set to close their diplomatic
3:03am
missions in yemen. spokesman said it was also for precautionary measures. peter, ally, tucker, back to you. >> alisyn: elizabeth, thank you for that we don't know much about this threat. we do know a few things. more specific than previous threats. the chatter and details that elizabeth just laid out were picked up from the nsa surveillance program, and that the intent as she said is to attack all western, not just u.s. interest. >> tucker: we know the message that it sounds is that al qaeda is very powerful. powerful enough to force the most serious country in the world to close 21 embassies all qualify as u.s. soil. so, basically, we are taking our crews from al qaeda, still sending a powerful message about strength and weakness. >> look at the map of all of the embassies and con salutes being shut down as a result of this threat allegedly coming out of yemen from a cap, al qaeda, the rainian peninsula. i think, tucker, you make the right point, rarely,
3:04am
it's not unprecedented but rarely in american history have governmental operations in so many countries been shut down and we don't know how long he they are going to be shut down. what kind of signal does that send to the world and what kind of activity will take in the future to trigger even greater shutdowns and even more embassies and con salutes around the world. >> sends a message we often send is that you can control our behavior by threatening us. >> alisyn: ing having said that remember all the heat that obviously the state department has taken in light of benghazi and that they did not shut down the consulate. they didn't listen to embassy chris stevens' cries saying that the situation was getting worse. maybe they have learned the lesson from benghazi. >> tucker: i think it's a dangerous world and there are risks out there. there are. and people will continue to die. the question is -- will al what everybody has said why did it they not pay attention to the unraveling security system in benghazi, so now they have a credible tip that something is going to happen on sunday. shouldn't they pay
3:05am
attention to that? not you. not you. >> i always thought that was unfair criticism. the problem in benghazi is the cover up of the lying. the fact is people die in the middle east because it's a dangerous region. >> peter: i think you are both making credible point. the valid point with regard to all of these closings are is why don't we have the backing of those countries that are providing security for our embassies? why isn't our relationship good enough with thighs countries some of them allegedly allies of the united states to stand and protect our embassy. the issue in benghazi was that we didn't have the forces there. that we had pulled them out. we had pulled the marines out. what are the marines doing here? what are the embassy protection teams doing here? what are these local countries doing to protect american interests? because in the end we need to he rely on them. >> alisyn: lt. colonel tony shaffer agrees with tucker that it sends the wrong message. >> we are sending the very wrong signal. we have spent billions of dollars on security in all of these embassies.
3:06am
you are telling me that a couple of guys with a very crude device may get close enough to do something and they are worried about that? i think we have got to be going at them, getting into their ooddle and how they think so we can prevent. this this tells me we are not out there like we should penetrating these groups and getting ahead of them. >> peter: how do you get ahead of them and what are we doing? it seems be out of nowhere, aly, tucker, because we have been told time and time again as well as in the 2012 election that the terrorists were on the run. so now we wake up on a day in august and we say we are closing 21 embassies in middle east, what happened? >> alisyn: which one is it? meanwhile, you of course remember in 2008 when the president, president obama made his outreach speech to the muslim world. basically said that he understood the muslim world because of his background, better than any previous president. things were going to change, he hoped. he, will open hand if it
3:07am
isn't met with a clinched fist. he extended a olive branch to the muslim world. and it turns out now that that was not -- they didn't care. i mean, it sounded good at the moment and it sounded like it was the dawn of a new day, and it sounded hopeful. but it was apparently naive because, as we have learned now, in retrospect, they don't really care hot president of the united states is. >> exactly it was predicated on a falsehood. the falsehood was they hate us because we have been mean to them or wronged them in some way. if we are only nice and show a little empathy and have conversations with them they will like us and stop attacking us. it turned out to be ludicrous. totally. >> wrong. charles krauthammer has thoughts on what went wrong. >> we have this unprecedented shutting of embassies. remember, there is no need to shut down u.s. embassies in christian lands already closed. this is only in the muslim world. obama had assumed that because of his history
3:08am
growing up in indonesia because of the sentiment he had towards islam, because of his silver tongue and because he was denouncing abroad all things having to do with bush, that america would, as he obama has been saying, it's standing in the world as a new high. it's at a rather low when we have to our embassies, unprecedented closings around the muslim world. i'm not second-guessing the call. we obviously have a lot of chatter, as he they say. it tells you the wreckage that the foreign policy. >> peter: wreckage. >> alisyn: wreckage, you could say it's the wreckage of the obama foreign policy or as tucker was saying us they hate us, they always have. it's not because of george bush. it's not because of our policy. it's because they are homicidal maniacs. they want to kill children. >> tucker: personal style. they thought bush was dumb. that's why they attacked us. it was so false from day one.
3:09am
>> alisyn: meanwhile, we do have other news to get to. here are your headlines. we have brand new information on that multi-state. >> salad was served in olive garden and red lobster restaurant. health officials are still trying to determine if the salad mix is responsible for the outbreak in the other 14 states. and it could be his last home run for a very long time. alex rodriguez smacking a homer during a rehab game last night in new jersey. reports until he has enemy tomorrow to announce a deal with major league suspension on doping and connections to doping clinic. mlb is considering a lifetime ban if a rod doesn't cop a deal. he sure sounds like someone expecting to place next week. >> are you confident that you are going to be in chicago? >> yeah. yep. unless i get hit by lightning and these days you never know.
3:10am
>> alisyn: god, are you listening? [ laughter ] major league baseball expected to announce what players are being suspended monday. this morning, the power ball jackpot has grown to it $300 million, if you will both excuse me, i need to go some place right now. the drawing is tonight so you are running out of time to have your strike at striking it rich. tickets are two bucks apiece. buy them in 43 states, washington, d.c., and the virgin islands. the odds of hitting all numbers, 1 in 75.2 million. >> that's all? >> there you go. peter. >> peter: rehab game. are all those people in rehab in that game? >> alisyn: i don't know what that term means. >> peter: that's an interesting term. >> alisyn: i wasn't sure about that a sports thing i didn't get. >> peter: okay. >> alisyn: rick reichmuth is here to tell us how the weather is looking around the country, hi, rick. >> not that bad for people really. nice day and temps not that bad either. trouble spots this morning. one is across areas of
3:11am
southern missouri. we have pretty significant rain three inches or so. flooding and severe weather as well. mostly very strong winds of some of these storms. springfield just to the north of branson, joplin, missouri area. be very careful this morning. this is also right here this is was once tropical storm dorian. still a tropical depression. dorian. notice all the rain is off short. i don't think we are looking at big impacts from this unless you are going to the coastal areas from the carolinas and down towards florida today. probably some rough seas and maybe a few rip current as well. might see a few inches of rain in florida but overall that's really not looking that bad. we will have much more on that coming up threat the morning. guys, send it back to you. >> tucker: thank you very much rick. sounds like good news. >> alisyn: unemployment rate is dropping. is the economy getting any better? breaking down the numbers next. >> tucker: who says money can't buy you love, of course it can.
3:12am
one woman putting it to a test. 10 grand to the one who can find her a husband. details on that coming up. ed i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh...no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane?
3:13am
yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just a click away with our free mobile app. a quarter million tweeters musicare tweeting.eamed. and 900 million dollars are changing hands online. that's why the internet needs a new kind of server. one that's 80% smaller. uses 89% less energy. and costs 77% less. it's called hp moonshot. and it's giving the internet the room it needs to grow. this ...is going to be big. it's time to build a better enterprise. together. ...and a great deal. . thanks to dad. nope eeeeh... oh, guys
3:14am
let's leave the deals to hotels.com. ooh that one! nice. got it! oh my gosh this is so cool... awesome! perfect! yep, and no angry bears. the perfect place is on sale now. up to 40% off. only at hotels.com
3:15am
>> alisyn: is the u.s. economy on the road to recovery. dipped to 7.4%, but what do these figures truly fell us? and where do we need to be to bounce back economically. let's ask judy, an employment expert. not unemployment, an employment expert. senior vice president at monster.com. good to see you. >> always good to see you too. >> alisyn: only good -- always confusing when the numbers come out. the unemployment number dropped to 7.4. what are we to make of
3:16am
this? >> there is a lot in this report, certainly that came out yesterday. a little bit of good news. a little bit of concerning news. the good news is the unemployment rate did drop by .2%. so we're down to 7.4. showing that less people are looking for work. but those are are legally two separate surveys. it also could be that some people are actually dropping out of the workforce and giving up on looking for work. >> alisyn: it sure seems like it it because in terms of full-time employment, that is at a low and not an impressive number. in fact, more part time jobs have been added this past year than full-time jobs. >> yes, and also seeing more temporary jobs created as well. so there there was job creation of 162,000, the jobs that are coming back, are in radio -- retail, sales positions, customer service. they are across the board. some professional jobs as well. but, concerning that, there is not stronger numbers and not more professional jobs actually being created.
3:17am
glnkts the labor participation rate fell to 63.5%. so that's -- there are a lot of people in this country who are not a part of the labor force. >> he yes. so less people working. it's actually at the lowest rate, i believe, since the carter administration. so it is concerning that there is not as many jobs that are out there today. there is less people working. though we are seeing job creation. there was also a few other concerns on the report. wages dropped. the average hours that people work on a weekly basis also declined. so, you know, it's kind of a -- the report was okay. but just not a fantastic report like we could have seen maybe 200,000 or more than 200,000 jobs created. that's what we really need to go back to to get things moving in the right direction. >> alisyn: you say there are some bright spots in the labor market. there are some cities that seem to be real hot spots
3:18am
for hiring. let's talk about those. number one, dallas-fort worth and houston number two. so texas is doing well. >> yeah. texas is doing well. texas even did well through the recession. there is a lot of opportunities in many different sectors. healthcare is doing very well. insurance, retail, again is hot area in texas well as information technology and engineering. >> alisyn: that might explain why atlanta and seattle and phoenix are also doing well. for people out there looking for jobs, you suggest that they look in nursing -- >> -- yes. >> and retail. >> retail, customer service, sales, it, again, is one of the hottest areas. you do need to have the experience and the skills. but there are a lot of opportunities in information technology. even, i think we had on the list truck drivers is coming back, which is a good economic indicator, you know, certainly that there is opportunity. so the positions are across the board in many sectors,
3:19am
but you really need to look at what states and what cities are performing well, you know, people that are open to relocation should certainly consider options because there are jobs out there but they are not in every state. >> alisyn: for more information on what jobs you can find go to monster.com. joan great to he so you this morning. >> great to see you, thank you. >> alisyn: the explosive car crash caught on camera. car across the interstate and car bursts into flames. what caused that car to lose control. first war on cigarettes. now some are waging a war on ecigarettes. where smokers just can't catch a break. i gotta go deposit a check, transfer some money. so it's your uncle's turn.

3:24am
traveling alert two dozen embassies and con salutes in the middle east due to what they call al qaeda terror threat. this while rusher grants temporary asylum to edward snowden. all this begs the question is america losing respect in its standing around the world. with us fox news military analyst bob generals. thank you for joining us this morning. >> hi, tucker. first to the news, do you think that closing 22 embassies and con salutes in response to al qaeda threat is a wise decision? >> oh, absolutely. it's a decision based on the presumption that al qaeda -- that the al qaeda franchise, at least in the middle east, has grown from the west coast of africa to indonesia and as far south as sudan. so what that suggests is that the bits and pieces of al qaeda have started to string together such that they can threaten wide areas of the world. american interests in wide areas of the world and do it with impunity.
3:25am
so, we learned in benghazi what happens when you don't send out threat alerts. and surely this is a prudent thing to do it also shows how america's influence is waning in these parties of the world, tucker. old saying in the military power equals capability times will. capability is of course military capability and will is your willingness to use it and probably at no time in our history have i seen american power be any greater but american resolve and american strategy and america's willingness to use that power be so diffused and difficult to figure out. >> tucker: is this what we are seeing to some extent in the snowden case fugitive in russia and russian people vladimir putin taking great pleasure in granting him asylum and thereby number ising the united states. >> let's just run down the list. pulling u.s. forces out of iraq two years ago based on
3:26am
current history, how does that look now. supplying the rebels in syria. here we are two or three months into this thing the sur i can'ts haven't gotten small arms from us yet, much less the missiles to kill tanks. look at egypt both sides the muslim brotherhood and the government are blaming us for it. finally to your point, you have this country, russia, that militarily is a shadow of what it was, say, towering the cold war continually and gleefully poke ago stick in the eye of the americans simply because we don't have the resolve or the will to do anything about it. >> tucker: wait, this is the opposite of what we were promised five years ago. wasn't it the idea because president obama experience indo-sneesh shah et would be beloved by the rest of the world and that would enhance american authority, no? >> oh, yes, let's go to another principle of war and that is that the enemy has a vote. the enemy's vote counts. it's one thing to declare yourself on one side of a global conflict. something else for the
3:27am
enemy to accept your declarations. it's one thing to give a great speeches about what we intend to do without paying enough attention to what the enemy is try to do. in all of the cases that you mentioned and that i have mentioned, the enemy steps back and listens and doesn't look for comedy with the united states. they look for chinks in our armor and weaknesses they can exploit. it's only been that way for 5,000 years, tucker. nothing is going to change. >> tucker: that's true. very smart point. general, thanks for joining us this morning. we appreciate it it? >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: the president continues to call the benghazi attack a phony scandal. if it's so phony why is this administration working so hard to keep a lid on what actually happened? who says money can't buy you love? of course it can. one woman putting that line to the test. she is offering 10 grand to the next person who can find her a husband. we got details on that coming up. ♪ i'm tony siragusa and i'm training guys who leak a little,

[ morty ] i'm listening! i want you to know >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? >> what we have seen as
3:32am
time as passed and more facts have become known whether it's about the attacks on benghazi and the talking points or revelations about conduct at the irs, that attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed. tuck troubling these people are such liars because it turns out it is a scandal. five employees who were present at benghazi a in september have been forced to sign more additional nondisclosure agreements. moreover more employees have been subjected to policy graph examination to see if they are leaking to media or congress. >> peter: dozens of cia employees on the ground that have never been disclosed in the past people did k. have
3:33am
histrionics about why does it matter and this is an old problem. but obviously this is one of the greatest scandals of this five year obama administration. >> alisyn: these are two dink things, why the saying it wasn't a big issue is something to explore. do we want our cia operatives' identities and motives being disclosed. isn't it a point they are supposed to be secretive? >> tucker: here is the problem. this administration has spent much more time and money and effort shutting down its own employees cia officers than it has ever people committing the murders. cnn organization this went went down and sat with one of the chief suspects this week in these killings. he said on camera "i have never been contacted by the fbi or libyan authorities. >> alisyn: that's an excellent point it is perplexing why there hasn't been more energy to try to find the culprits that
3:34am
killed four americans there has been no explanation for that. the fbi put them up on their most wanted list. there are pictures, not them, obviously those are our four american heros the victims. the fbi put up who they believe the perpetrators are on their web site and and why isn't anybody interviewing the suspect? why aren't they going after them? it's obviously not that hard party peter i asked my brother and sister in the morning and i ask the american people does congress have a right to know what happened in benghazi. and apparently the white house doesn't think they have a right. watch this. >> nearly six months ago, our own secretary kerry asking for the names and contact information of the state department employees who were in benghazi last september. did the department refuse to provide this information or even confirm the number of those wounded and the nature of their injuries? >> alisyn: yeah, i just don't know what the protocol is.
3:35am
are cia identities revealed to congress? is that how it normally works? when you ask to know more about the cia and secret operation. >> congress has the oversight over the executive that's exactly right and that includes the cia. >> peter: there doesn't seem to be any excuse put forth why this information is not forthcoming. you look back at what the president said as the bodies return. and the outrage that he expressed and the condemnation and the heart felt feelings of loss, but what's been the follow-up? no investigation. no capture or kill. and certainly coverup. >> tucker: total coverup. a complete coverup. someone not covering up his own views is is charlie rangel. the chief tax writer in congress. chairman of the ways and means committee. congressman in harlem. >> he has given outrageous interview to the daily beast yesterday in which he has shared his unvarnished
3:36am
view of tea party members. and it is rife with offensive terms and comparisons. here it is: it is the same group we faced in the south with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. i don't want to sea it, and i am not a part of it. well, that's helpful rhetoric, congressman. >> tucker: those white crackers. now a lot of people are shocked by. this charlie rangel comes out with antiwhite statements. he has been a race baiter for 40 years. how he has won his seat if the first place and governed. he was s. also corrupt' caught not paying his taxes. how can this guy have this elevated position in the democratic party. >> peter: i find continue credible. i have known charlie rangel for a long time. he served in korea and did some honorable things in congress. these kind of statements. when you say that someone is a white cracker, that's
3:37am
a horribly bad, bad thing for anyone to say. especially a person who prides himself on enforcing civil rights in this country. so, when you call someone a white cracker, a member of the tea party. and he went on to say other things he likened the republicans to terrorists in this country. does that lead to a civil discourse? does that lead to rest of the world sunday strict orders not to be big gotted at all. crush people and fire them for saying unapproved things. charlie rangel former chairman of the house ways and means community says i'm a racist i hate white people. you know him too. kind of like him because is he charming. spend 5 minutes minutes with charlie rangel and you know this guy a race baiter with a hang up about white people. it's obvious.
3:38am
>> peter: to see people in the tea party are like bull conner, putting dog on people who are protesting for their legitimate civil rights in this country, that is incredible. it is incredible. >> tucker: i hope someone will point this out after these endless dinners and contributes to charlie rangel a civil rights hero. the guy is a racist. i think the democratic party should have to account for lie nice ago guy. >> i can't believe is he a racist. he is 83 years old. i would think that he would have to apologize for this. >> tucker: there is no chance he will apologize for that because no one is going to make him. >> i think his conscience would dictate it. [ laughter ] >> tucker: you are a good man, peter, no, you are. >> peter: who-to-look at this in black and white it's incredible. >> alisyn: let us know what you think charlie rangel should do next. meanwhile, we have more headlines for you including a fox news alert. there has been a terrifying crash caught on camera. watch this.

>> peter: shelled out is that much from 2008 to 2012 to people who were no longer alive. they aren't the only ones who have made this mistake. how and why is this happening? joining us now hadley heath with the independent women's forum. quorng good morning hadley, how are you doing? >> good morning, peter, i'm doing well. >> let's take a look at some of these incredible numbers that we're seeing these payouts to dead people in america. the nrcs made $10.6 million in payments on behalf of 1103 deceased policy holder one year or more after their death. the rma paid $22 million to
3:47am
more than 3400 policy holders deceased for two years. this is for crop insurance. then we look at the department of agriculture, 33 million in 2008 to $2,012 to the dead. then we look at social security administration, 31 million back in may of 2012. office of personnel management $86.1 million. and then, finally, the stimulus program $18 million. what is this about, hadley? what can we do about it? >> it is a sad story. but it's not a surprising story to me. i don't think there is any story about government mismanagement that could surprise me at this point. here in washington we see it every day. these millions of wasted dollars are dollars in many cases that we can't get back. dollars we need to sustain these programs like social
3:48am
security, which is headed for bankruptcy anyway. so this, to me, is a pile of evidence for why the federal government has gotten too big to successfully manage these millions and millions, even billions of dollars in subsidies. >> peter: let's talk about these farm subsidies. farm crop insurance. how can dead people possibly be getting checks? i mean, long after they passed away. >> right. in many cases these different departments have a death list, a death master list that they try to keep up with, reports of dead people. but, in many cases, months and even years afterwards. sometimes misused in family members. some cases the family men's doing due diligence to get in touch with uncle sam here in d.c. to let them know there has been a death in the family. despite a death report on file. the checks continue to go out in the mail. >> peter: when they go out in the mail, i would presume that sometimes they are actually cashed by someone, right? >> well, sometimes they
3:49am
are. what's interesting, there was actually a case in california, recently the attorney general's office found out about a man who buried his own mother in his backyard and now they are prosecuting him for that kind of fraud. so if you are in a family where you have lost someone and receiving checks from the federal government. don't try to take advantage. just do your due diligence to try to contact uncle sam. peter, i have got to say from a policy progressive, all of this cries out for more devolvement in these programs. for more local control. give states and local authorities the ability to help people be accountable, to help uncle sam be accountable with these dollars. this is not something the federal government has to be doing. >> peter: hadley heath, independent women's forum. thank you for making us smart about this really strange and really disturbing subject. >> thank you. >> peter: we will see you soon. >> see you. >> peter: coming up, tell you about the victims of the fort hood shooting massacre who have been denied proper benefits because the government won't call that despicable act terrorism. well, this morning some

3:54am
york good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> alisyn: if you are waking up through the night it could be something very serious. let's go through the symptoms and what it could mean. number one reason people get up through the night go to the bathroom. >> the case particularly for men. as men get older their prostate gland can squash into the bladder. being a urologist i see men all the time coming in explaining getting up going to the bathroom. if you are up at night going to the bathroom. your wife is often disturbed as well. it effects both people. and women can get up at night with bladder issues as well. it's a very, very common problem. even if they don't have pain when they pass urine, just the fact that you are going to the bathroom during the night sobbously very annoying. >> alisyn: what are you supposed to do about that if you are a man. >> first thing to do is speak to your urologist if you have a problem. it may be innocent enlarge many of the prostate. occasionally it can be associated with prostate cancer. it may be something just simple like a urinary tract infection.
3:55am
you need to discuss this with the urologist so they can. >> tucker: breathlessness. having enough trouble getting enough air when they lie in bed at night. what does that mean? >> lots of causes for breathlessness, tucker. one of the things we get concerned about is particularly in he elderly people can be a sign of heart failure. particularly at night exacerbated when you lie flat. the fluid can collect from the lungs. we do ask patients how many pillows if you sleep with if you go flat does the pillow down that can worsen your shortness of breath. if you up. younger people related to asthma, particularly if you a cough during the night as well. >> alisyn: some people do when he they lay down cough more. there is another possible underlying cause for that. >> not just asthma but a lot of patients have acid reflex and when you lie down, the stomach acid can leak and the valve between the stomach and the stomach
3:56am
can allow acid to go backwards through the throat. irritate the airways in the throat give you a cough at night. prop up the bed. don't eat late at night and avoid alcohol before going to bed. tuck number one discord is snoring can be a sign of something bad. >> that's right. many patients who snore. particularly patients who are overweight puts a lot of pressure on the airways. there is a condition called obstructive sleep apnea where you can actually stop breathing for 20 to 40 seconds. so these episodes where you stop breathing, that can strain the heart. it's a serious medical problem. so, snoring is obviously very annoying for many people. if you are snoring. >> tucker: women don't like it? >> of course people are tired during the day. if they are constantly waking up during the night. talk to your doctor. particularly if you have cardiac problems and you are a snorer. >> alisyn: scary when your spouse stops snoring for 40 seconds. go check that out. dr. philip cheatham thank you very much.

4:02am
but very specific message that the u.s. is sending which is we are on the run. we will adjust our behavior dramatically. you threaten us and we will jump that may not be a useful message. >> peter: on top of the closing of the embassies a worldwide alert until the end of august for all americans traveling around the world to be cautious at transportation facilities and other public facilities. so not only embassy closing but a state department alert to all americans traveling overseas. we had major general bob scales, one of the smartest guys really in the world on military issues. and he talked about how unprecedented this was today. >> probably at no time in our history have i seen american power be any greater but american resolve and american strategy and america's willingness to use that power be so diffused and difficult to figure out.
4:03am
>> there have been other embassy shutdowns. not to this level in june of 1999. six embassies were closed because security warnings in africa. in april of '01. three embassies, one consulate were closed. you get the point there have been other closings, but this again is considered the biggest scale. the fact that it was issued by the state department as opposed to ambassadors at individual embassies. normally they are the ones who alert the u.s. if they feel as though there is some sort of hot spot and it needs to be closed. but the state department did this blanket closing this week. >> 22 embassies and con salutes. each one of those by the way is american soil. whatever happened to the rudy giuliani posture post 9/11 where he said look, this is a dangerous world. you can't eliminate all danger. we have to be realistic about that our job is to live with courage and to basically give the finger to terrorism by living our lives as we would otherwise. >> alisyn: that is a great message. the flip side of that message is did we leisure
4:04am
the tragic lesson from benghazi is that you must take precautions i am hearing chatter, you must shut down or else four americans lose their lives as happened in benghazi. >> tucker: that's like half the world. that is basically -- if there is specific intelligence saying this or that embassy is going to be attacked of course take prudent action. this is shutting down every american outpost in the entire middle east. >> peter: let's go back to what general case was talking about. general scales said never has we had as much power in the world in terms of our military might. but never have we ever had a time in our military history when we were really less interested in using that power. and so it sends a mighty, mighty signal to terrorists, al qaeda, arabian peninsula, whoever is involved with this that, yes, if you chatter it up enough, can you shut down american embassies around the world. >> of course we will take our shoots off, take our belt off. take our laptop out of the
4:05am
bag. we are afraid. that is a message that we are sending and have been sending in my view for a number of years. we are on the run. we are america. we should never be on the run. >> alisyn: you make a great point. either choose to see terrorists as vandals in the giuliani model sidelined or see on global war on terror we are engaged in and weed need to take every measure and precaution to try to stop. two different models. >> look, the truth is, it is a dangerous world there are tons of people who hate us preeminent country in world history. of course we are going to have a lot of enemies some of them blood thirsty, some are going to die in that conflict. be realistic about it and not live cowering in a cave. let's be brave. we are americans that's what we do. >> peter: question becomes global war on terror. you raise an interesting point, aly, is pulling the shades down and making believe you are not home is, that a robust attack on the global war on terror? to say okay, we're just
4:06am
going to shut it down. we're going to turn the lights off and we're not really here if we're not really here you can't attack us. >> tucker: they are going to go away. >> peter: is it okay? is it light? what's going on. >> alisyn: beef up security. >> peter: pull the cover over your heads foreign policy of america oh it's going to go away. >> tucker: close the embassies. that will teach them. >> alisyn: also interested in the fact that the alert expires on august 31st. i guess the terrorists are taking labor day off? i have never seen expiration date. >> tucker: we are announcing what the expiration date is.

they are just closing for business. they are not removing the american diplomat. they close for business and that protects the visitors that would come there for visas and things like that. but the problem is closing for business doesn't make the american diplomats disappear. many are compounds where they live close for business that's fine. 500 yards away is the residents. recreation hall and swimming pool. they are safe there but not safe at their desk? i don't understand that. >> what message does this send that the united states hears of credible threats and immediately shutters 22 embassies and con salutes? doesn't it suggest that the united states is afraid? >> i believe embolds -- every time it happens and there is not a reaction when we act like this or after benghazi. they killed four americans

mural was asked tell us about the investigation, it was like what investigation? well, i can't tell you anything because we don't have one. that's just the reality. >> alisyn: i have worked with the fbi on probably 100 cases, they don't normally wait for white house authorities to go and capture somebody. >> exactly. >> alisyn: why aren't they doing what they -- why they all work there? what they normally do. >> they all ultimately work for the department of justice headed by eric holder he was appointed by barack obama. i'm not saying barack obama is sitting there manipulating any decision. i'm saying within this administration there has been a very clear atmosphere created that you don't want to go there. and, you know, these are very highly professional people but on or about, they have families, they have careers to worry about. and who wants to mess up their career chain. >> alisyn: by captures a terrorist? why don't we want to capture the benghazi terrorist? >> exactly. >> we do. you and me and peter and tucker and i think most of the american public, but
5:13am
here is the problem. when you capture the terrorist, wone, terrorism is y alive. rule one. number two, is that not only is it alive. but it's doing a lot of things to us and it is, you know, not easy to capture and we are a long way from putting an end to it. >> governor is going to stay with us for the next segment. here -- hear in this is modern. >> "time" magazine latest couple says couples that go child-free are much happier. don't have kids, enjoy your life. is this the right message? >> alisyn: why your criminal past should have no impact on landing that job. whew

5:17am
>> alisyn: take a look at the latest "time" magazine. child-free life when having it all means not having children. the article inside suggest that more and more couples are choosing not to have kids because it can allow them to live a more fulfilling life. is this the wrong message to be sending? we are joined again by governor mike huckabee. i can't wait to fight with you about this one. it basically is trying to defy the fact that there is this motherhood mandate right now in the country. and hollywood is glamorizing pregnancy and baby bumps and maybe you can still have a good life without having children. >> of course you can i recognize that for some people that's maybe the best decision. especially for people maybe who write articles like this it's a good thing they didn't have kids. seriously. on the other side, i don't ever want to get to the point where we diminish the idea of not only creating
5:18am
the next generation but training them to be our replacements, which is the highest particular calling i think that we have as human beings is to create an ongoing process of humanity and then to train it to be better than we are. the real question is are we training the next generation to be better than we are? and, if we are not, maybe, and if that's not our goal, probably we would be better off being childless, because, i worry about what we say when we see hollywood with this idea that you don't need mothers and fathers for children, you know, it's not necessary to have marriage. it's not necessary to raise that child in the context of a family and home. you know, surrogate mom, get a nanny to raise it. but i'm a mom. you know, i think it's necessary to focus on the real sense of having the child raising the child, teaching the child right and wrong. >> having children means less time for vacations and spin class. have you ever seen anything
5:19am
more selfish, decadent and stupid? why is it that "time" magazine doesn't surprise you that "time," which is really a natural home for articles like this would be publishing it. >> look, we are talking about it "time" will sell more issues because we are actually discussing it. but, you know, again, i'm not offended that people to say we just don't want to have children. i think it's better for people. live that way for people that have kids that don't really want. that scares me is the people -- are the people who say oh well, we are going to have a kid, boy what a mess. >> alisyn: because of societal pressure to do. so people go along with it they don't really think about whether they are right for maternity, paging kim kardashian. >> one thing i can't imagine life without the incredible joy i have had from raising my children. all of whom are grown visiting grandchildren. the incredible thrill. take every dime i have ever earned and take everything i have ever owned and i would give it away freely for the joy of holding my children and grandchildren

5:34am
imagine a congressman using a racial slur and saying it without any fear of repercussions? >> tucker: yes, well i remember robert byrd the longest serving history. a recruiter for the kkk literally used the "n" word live on fox, actually, and was feted by other democratic party luminaires when he he died no one mentioning it. >> the tea party is equivalent to bull conner and other people in the south who tried to subject subrogate violence and other means. it's totally untrue. there is no basis in fact for it. so, is the problem is he 83 years old a bigot as tucker says? will he apologize? for this? i said earlier i would think he would have to apologize for. this i would think he would have to come on shows across the country like this show and say this is
5:35am
what i meant. and either validate it in some fashion, if he has some evidence. >> right. >> about the tea party. >> that they are white crackers. and also say republicans were akin to terrorists in this country. >> he would have to awill to guise if someone applied pressure to him to do so. and so you would love to see, say, harry reid or nancy pelosi or president obama, the leaders of his party apply some kind of pressure by expressing their disapproval for what he said. i bet you lunch that that won't happen. by the way, he went on to say anyone against immigration reform is a racist. every son of a gun from europe has. the problem is a lot of whites feel awkward around people of color. that's why we are having this debate. >> that's ridiculous. >> alisyn: what is he talking about? this sort of rhetoric is so unhelpful and the fact that it is still happening in this day and age and that he says it with impunity. this is -- this was an interview. this wasn't like he was caught on a hot mike and he
5:36am
didn't know anybody was listening. this is an interview that he gave and says these things with impunity because, as tucker points out, nobody is calling him on it. >> peter: the president likes to inject himself into issues he believes of national concern even when they are truly local in nature. in a racial discussion will we hear from the president with regard to this particular issue. >> tucker: no, we won't. >> peter: hear the president calling out my friend charlie rangel. i have known him a long time. i can't believe he would say this. >> tucker: i can it's consistent and i have always thought rangel i have known him always thought he was charming. it's consistent. he is a race baiter. it's not helpful. it makes people hate each other and makes people paranoid and suspicious. by the way, the reason that our politics have been so placid compared to the rest of the world is we have less ethnic politics than the rest of the world. to the extent we have more,
5:37am
the country becomes less stable. it's a scary thing, playing with fire. >> peter: need to bring folks together in this city and this country and that does not wring us together. >> no. >> alisyn: in the meantime, we want to bring you headlines and tell you what else is happening around the world. brand new details emerging this morning about that new york ad executive who fell to her death after the railing on her balcony collapsed. inspection has determined that jennifer's balcony was not up to code. investigators say the railing was not strong enough to support death trap. expect for six months judy any edward federal grand jury is now investigating that firm. last cleared him for the nsa. there are concerns with the firm called u.s. investigations services cut corners to speed up their process. ran more and fewer background checks

5:47am
>> their desperate fear about what is happening with this war on women that they started. there is a war on women. >> all right. well, some are now saying the democrats are actually waging a war on women. democrats like elliott weiner, eliot spitzer and bob filner now that it's one of their own next guest says democratic party leaders are strangely silent. joining us now "washington times" senior editor our own pal emily miller. emily, welcome. >> thanks, tuck iter. >> bob filner is a member of congress and now a mayor of san diego. eight of his reputed victims was literally like grabbing women. so that's not a war on women, what is? >> that is sexual assault actually what he was doing. now we have got these poor women who worked for him all these years or at least this year he has been mayor at least we know of have come out suddenly because they are no longer scared.
5:48am
is he grabbing me on the rear end. is he putting his hand down my shirt. is he slobbering on me. this is sexual assault. i mean, this is not, you know, the democrats launched this war on women it was because rush limbaugh rated talk show host great rush limbaugh said sandra fluke is a shut because she wants the taxpayer to pay for birth control. they used that to blame the party, which is not the elected officials waging a war on women. but it has nothing to do with that bob filner is -- this man is disgusting. and what he is doing is illegal and you don't hear anyone talking about it you don't hear president obama -- you don't hear any of the party leaders saying this man has got to go. >> alisyn: of course, democrats can chalk it up to bob filner is having some sort of issue or he is losing his marbles that case one oddball guy who should probably not be in office anymore. they don't lump it into a war on women category. what do you think that
5:49am
party leaders like harry reid or debbie wasserman shoults or nancy pelosi should be saying? >> they should say bob -- bob filner we disavow we tonight want him in our party. president of the united states when asked, the president doesn't even have to talk about this. when the spokesman of the white house are asked about these cases they should say the president of the united states does not want people like that who sexually assault women in office. it's the same thing with anthony weiner, same thing with elliott eliot spitzer. these people should not be in public life. i think bob filner should probably be in jail for what he is doing. weiner, i don't know what you do with that he is just a pervert and can't change. but definitely shouldn't be mayor of new york. why can't he they talk about it. >> tucker: used the word pervert applies to this case it works though. that's why this talking point exists because it scares female voters into voting democrat, no? it. it worked last year because people were confused and
5:50am
confused it with policy versus with what republicans said. this year is different. the biggest issue for women's health that they like to talk about this year is abortion. and abortion when a baby can feel the pain of the abortion which is 20 weeks. that bill passed the house already and is facing the senate. and 70 -- between 60 and 70% of women favor. this they think they have got a war on women but, in fact, the women are on a different side when it comes to actually policy and the important things. >> alisyn: emily miller, you are with the "washington times." thanks so much for sharing your perspective on. this thanks for having me. >> tucker: coming up, we have been talking to you about the victims of the fort hood shooting massacre who have been denied proper benefits because the government won't call it terrorism. well, this morning some news that may change all of that. >> alisyn: this man just gave away morning, some news ty change all of that. >> this man gave away tickets to baseball games. hear his story next. chances are,
